Elizabeth Callow is to direct
“Entertaining Angels”, by Richard Everett,
Production week 18th to 22nd October 2021
As a vicar's wife, Grace has spent a lifetime on her best behaviour. Now, after the death of her husband Bardolph, she can enjoy the new-found freedom of being able to do and say exactly what she wants. But the return of her eccentric missionary sister, Ruth, together with some disturbing revelations forces Grace to confront the truth of her marriage. Set in a lush vicarage garden complete with grass, plants and a stream with running water, the play is filled with sharp-edged comedy and probing wit. This play was described as a ‘very English comedy’ with some real emotion…scratch the surface and you’ll find interesting undercurrents rippling the water… how well do we ever know those we love?
Grace says “I’ve made four thousand six hundred medium-sized quiches and personally baked two tons of light crust pastry. And for what?!” Penelope Keith gave a widely acclaimed performance as Grace, whose bon-mots are quite delightful and very funny.
